Pope Gets Own Comic Book – And Not From Bluewater

Pope Benedict XVI is getting his own comic book – and it's not from Bluewater.

Manga Hero, an Californian Christian manga publisher is published the volume for World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain. Titled Habemus Papam!, these are the Latin words used after the papal election, translated as "We have a pope!"

Latin title? Yes, definitely not Bluewater.

It's been written by Gabrielle Gniewek, a student at John Paul the Great University in San Diego, California, and darwn by Singapore artist Sean Lam and will be published by Dedalo Grupo Grafico in Spain, with a combined Spanish and English print run of 300,000. The book will covers the Pope's life and work within Catholicism.

I'm looking forward to the Hitler Youth chapter…
